There are a lot of people smarter than me on here, so looking for some advice. I have a spouse and two small kids. I've always done a traditional PPO healthcare plan because the cost was 100% covered by work and I was too lazy to switch. Because my wife had her own HDHP plan, we had HSA access. She's not working right now (but will be going back eventually). I'm considering doing HDHP but wondering if anyone with small kids has regretted that? (cont. in comments)
Very broad question here- but can you tell me what you do and if you like it? I’m a first year associate and I don’t like the practice areas I’m in right now. (PI plaintiffs- mostly med mal). I honestly am just not interested in going through medical records/deposing doctors for the rest of my career. I know I want to stay on the litigation side but that’s about it. I worked for an insurance defense firm in school and didn’t love that either. TIA!
Hi, does anyone know anything about the company Zelis? I was contacted today about setting up an interview for a Claims Settlement Specialst-2. Can anyone tell me about this company? The culture? Advancement opportunities? Pay? Benefits?
Going through a total loss settlement negotiation for my car with insurance. In parallel they’re asking to sign power of attorney for title transfer. Does this make sense to do when I’m still negotiating the settlement amount ? Trying to think what other leverage i would have if I sign over the vehicle (which itself isn’t much to begin with)
Recommendations for firms to look into in South FL? I'm in Ft. Lauderdale but am open to Boca or Miami. I'm a first year associate in ID (coverage issues) but really would prefer transactional work. More importantly though, I'm looking for companies who pay relatively well (doesn't necessarily have to be market), are open to remote/hybrid work, aren't sweatshops. I'd settle for insurance work if theres good WLB & $$$ lol
After clerking for four years in state court, I am starting my first associate job in a mid-sized firm’s commercial lit group. I believe the work will be pretty varied with a range of contract, class action, employment, and insurance disputes. I am anxious to do well. Any practice guides or other resources you’d recommend to a new associate who’s no longer a new lawyer?

Hi guys 👋🏻👋🏻
I am filling the onboarding form for my next company IBM where they have asked 2 questions:
1)Were you earlier a member of Employee's provident fund scheme, 1952?
2) Were you earlier a member of Employee's pension scheme, 1995?
All I know is PF and EPS amounts were deducted from my salary in my previous company but how to know if I am a member of these two mentioned schemes?
Thanks in advance for your inputs guys 🙌🏻
In addition to Herman Cain, the founder of Turning Point USA died of coronavirus this week. Every life lost matters, but hopefully theirs can matter more by helping people that still see this as a political issue realize it isn't.
I’ve always avoided annuities but think this one from NY Life is interesting. It’s called a Variable Investment Fund and you can add an Investment Preservation Rider for a fee. The IPR guarantees your investment return will at least be the cash you put in.
Typical portfolio returns about 7.5% after all fees. The commission fee is 2%.
So you are attenuating some upside and paying a pretty hefty fee, but you are insuring agains the downside.

Anyone used/using HMBradley before for HYSA? They have a 3% rate which seems unreal in this economy. Just want to make sure it’s legit. It’s seems HMBradley is the marketer for Hatch Bank (FDIC insured). Any other recommendations for HYSA?
Is this reasonable or am I missing something?
I started maxing my 401k from year 1 and I hope to have $5 million or more by the time I retire around 60. Wouldn’t it make sense to put all of my yearly $19,500 401k contribution to ROTH 401k instead of traditional 401k?
My reasoning is that I would pay 35% tax now and my remaining 65% would grow tax-free in ROTH 401k…. versus traditional 401k where I deposit 100% but every distribution will be taxed 35% assuming I make a lot in retirement.
I have 401(k)s from previous employer, which I left as 401(k) instead of converting to an IRA so that I could backdoor Roth without complications.
Should I consolidate my previous 401(k)s into the same administrator if I like their investment options, or is there a benefit to having separate accounts for flexibility if I never need to withdraw “substantially equal periodic payments”?

If you have Wealthfront and Personal Capital, why do you one over the other to track net worth? PC seems to have the same exact qualities that WF does but does much less than it. I’ve used Wealthfront since 2015 and love everything about it, except that it occasionally drops some of my accounts while tracking.
How do people balance living for today and being responsible enough to prepare for the future? I’m 40 and have been really concerned that I’m not living life enough. Just doing the things that make you happy whether it be experiences or material things. My biggest fear is retiring early or whenever and being too old to enjoy it or having less time to enjoy it. Just seems like so many people are getting sick or even worst dying much sooner than expected.
What do you think the total cost of a child is from 0-18 + college if they are interested. Just did the math in my head and am kinda shocked by the price tag.
